When creating one of my blogs this time last year, I stumbled across the following photo and set it as the main image for my site.
It remained the main image for several months.
Then, in spring 2018, I bought myself a laptop with the dream that it would help me be more productive on my blogs.
Until then, I’d been working with our all-in-one desktop that I bought refurbished in 2013 when my 2007 laptop quit turning on one day.
I was told I was lucky it lasted that long.
So I tried not to complain.
When that happened, I was convinced it was a test, a test to see if I would quit writing.
And I didn’t.
At the end of 2017, determined not to be tested again, I started thinking about buying a new PC before this desktop decided to die mid-blogging. It was already showing signs of weakness.
*insert annoying dial-up tone*
Ain’t nobody got time for that!
I turned up a fantastic deal for a refurbished 17″ laptop that has the newer SSD hard drives so startup time is literally 30 seconds.
Bonus: when I set it up for the first time, I discovered it also had the option to do facial recognition to login.
How about that for time management!
Being that I use my laptop mostly for writing, I wanted to pick a wallpaper that would keep me motivated.
So, I chose the same photo that I showed you earlier, the one with a silver laptop, white flowers and a cup of coffee.
After setting it as the wallpaper, I spent several hours performing updates and downloading apps.
And guess what I realized at the end of the day, just before shutting it down?
I looked at the photo sideways and realized that that was my laptop.
Yup, I bought the exact same laptop as what was in the photo.
I purchased a size bigger, but it was my laptop!
*puts hands on either side of head*
My God! Isn’t that some kinda crazy!?
I manifested the exact model as the photo and I didn’t even realize I did it until afterwards.
This reminded me of a story I heard from one of the men in the movie “The Secret.” In the film, he described finding his old vision board in a box one day and sees the very house he bought on the board.
Yes, his exact house!
I remember thinking at the time that he was weird because how would he not have realized it sooner.
Now, here I am, in the same boat.
Life just amazes me sometimes! I love it!
